Still no new icon...

...but my review of The Rings of Akhaten should be up at the reviews section of the Doctor Who News Page soon.

edited to add: It's now up, and here's the direct link.

Eleventh Doctor

The suggestion that Clara's mother's death might be premature in a temporal sense as well as an emotional one reminded me of the second Sapphire and Steel story, where Steel sends Tully to an early death so that the Darkness will feed off the resulting paradox and abandon its planned general nastiness, whatever that was (I can't remember, Sapphire and Steel being more about atmosphere than rational explanations).

I like the idea of Clara as a Blue Peter presenter, even without the suggestion that, after Oswin and Victorian Clara, this Clara is one that was prepared earlier...

Not sure about souls as stories, but there's an old Yiddish proverb that "God created the world because He loves stories."

Spock annual 1975

There's a potential reading of the episode in that last paragraph, if rather Star Trek V-like...

I think it was done better in The Pandorica Opens!
